Whatever your chosen online business, you need CUSTOMERS and you get them by building a good list to sell to. Then if you change business or take on something new, you have a ready made audience for your venture.
So it’s even better, if in the process of building your list, you get other people to help you do it. They join your list and start a list of their own, but they also contribute some of their effort to yours.
It’s called ‘LIST LEVERAGE’ and what you get is not ONLY the list itself, but there are additional opportunities to make money apart from your main business. This is the best thing I have seen in a long while and it is WORKING for me – I am getting new leads every day.
In today’s post, I’m going to give you a couple of alternatives for ways to build your list.
To start with you need an autoreponder, because that’s where your list members are going to end up. I mentioned the one I use in one of the follow ups if you have already joined my subscribers. However if you aren’t on my list, I’ll say it again.
The jump from merely being a reader and subscriber of your blog to being an enthusiastic customer will be made easier if you absorb and understand one specific concept. You have to offer your subscribers VALUE if you want them to consider buying from you.
So how do you do that? If you fill in the subscribe form here on my blog, you will now be taken to a ‘Thank You’ page on which I offer you a free report about listbuilding. For subscribers who have been with me for a while, you may recall something different, and you would be right. However, the last couple of days showed me that I was not using my blog in the most efficient way.
I’m a Brit OK? We British have a reputation for being reserved in our dealings with other people. Maybe that’s wrong and maybe it’s right but I feel that in my business and in my personal life, there are lines not to cross and places I should not go when talking to other people.
Recently that led to coming smack up against a business colleague who evidently thinks that I am being negative and something of a wimp and because of that I’m losing out on potential business. I have to disagree and this blog post is about the two sides of that argument.
I have thrown my hat in the ring and decided to join the newly launched Leads System Network, based on the referrals I collected in pre-launch. Much as I love Contact List Builder, I acknowledge that some people find the system difficult where it involves joining several different programs including an autoresponder, lead capture page creator and so on.

Millions of people every year are suckered into network marketing by totally unrealistic promises of high incomes for very little effort.
They join what looks like a promising opportunity and are faced with a big monthly bill which they have to try to equalize by recruiting, and maybe a hefty chunk of money upfront as well. The fallout is very high when they start to hit problems finding new people to come into their business.Continue reading →
